That was 2015

Not much to say about this except that it was a bad year for the hobby when it comes to activity levels. I missed a few major events due to stormy weather and the workload and stress of changing jobs. If can’t influence the weather but I hope to be there again in 2016.

Not a bad 2015 when it comes to results. First place in Region 1 Field Day CW and my first wooden plaque ever from a DX contest (RAEM).


The two last weeks of 2015 have skewed the numbers for the rest of the year. I made 2800+ CW only contacts starting half December as one of the ON90IARU team. Since it was me who made these contacts from here, I included them in the statistics. However without this incentive I would have made far less contacts (especially on 30m) and would have had far less active days on the counter.



  • 17% SSB, 83% CW
  • Zero contacts in digital modes in 2015
  • I should log QSO #250 000 pretty soon!
  • A massive two QSO on 6m, which is 100% increase from 2014 (only 1 then).
